Brady's Bridge RSVP to package trees for Brady's Bridge, November 29th from 10am-11:30am. It's the 7th Annual Christmas Tree drive for Brady's Bridge and AAA Outreach is here to help! Donations made to the AAA Fund will be used to purchase and decorate trees for kids in the hospital this year in Austin, Temple and San Antonio. Just $15 provides a child in the hospital with a 2 ft tree, lights and ornaments. Brady's Bridge has a goal to donate 400 trees this year. For more information, visit www.bradysbridge.org. Thank you to all who make it possible to #bethelight to these families each year!
Red Cross Disaster Response Team Thanks to everyone who has expressed an interest in this program. Training takes place December 11 from 1pm-4pm at AAA. AAA wishes to create a trained volunteer emergency response team for Red Cross, one specifically utilized to call on to respond to emergencies at apartment communities in our area such as fires, floods and other emergencies.
What is your obligation as a member of the AAA Emergency Response Team? One hour of online training followed by two hours of classroom training conducted by the Red Cross in our classroom at a date TBD this fall. Once training is complete, your name will be added to a volunteer roster at the Red Cross of Central Texas. In the event of an emergency at a multi-family rental housing community, our team of trained volunteers will be contacted to help in response efforts. There is no obligation to help when called, but the hope is you will be trained and ready to go when help is needed most.
